Re: New Mobile Ballistics Calculator

Bryan,
How does the 3 wind zones work? Does it divide your total distance into thirds? Or can you imput where these separate wind zones occur?

Re: New Mobile Ballistics Calculator

It divides the range into 3 equal zones, automatically.

For example, on a 900 yard shot, zone 1 applies over 0-300 yards. Zone 2 applies from 301 to 600 yards. Zone 3 applies from 601 to 900 yards.

The range breakpoints are not adjustable, it's always 1/3's.

Re: New Mobile Ballistics Calculator

Nape,

MOBALL does correct for the effects of altitude via the station pressure input. This is where you would input the pressure that's measured by a device like a Kestrel.

MOBALL also includes a utility program that allows you to calculate your station pressure based on your altitude if you don't have a device to measure station pressure.

Detailed instructions on how to handle altitude and pressure are included in the user manual.

Re: New Mobile Ballistics Calculator

Bryan, does it allow to use metric units( meters)?
Or combine metric and imperial ( i.e. vel in fps, distance/range in meters?


And.. output is for a specific distance, or can it draw a range card?

Thanks

Re: New Mobile Ballistics Calculator

Alg,

MOBALL is set up to accept imperial units.

Most devices that you would use to measure variables in the field (atmospherics and range) can be configured to output in imperial units. Worse case scenario, you may have to convert. This is no problem because the TI Voyage is powerful graphing calculator with the ability to perform conversions easily.

MOBALL does not output tables (range cards). It outputs sight adjustments only for the range you specify. There are many PC programs that output tables that you can print from your computer. MOBALL is intended to accept the specific field variables that are present for a particular shot, and calculate a custom solution for that shot only.
